Hi Tigger and welcome to the uk in advance. Always take an umbrella and despite the weather when you go out for the day, ALWAYS take 2 sets of clothing, what you are wearing, then take the opposite with you :D. As far as car rental, if you choose the cheaper option then you will be renting a USED car! Nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but hopefully you know yourself, that anything that has already been used can be subject to problems BUT saying that brand new vehicles are not guaranteed not to have problems either! So just take it all in your stride, don't get stressed and enjoy being in England as much as you can! Good Luck :D
Hi Kerrie, Thank you for you welcoming words and advice on the British weather. im used to it though as we was here for 5 years and are back for another 4 at least. The car hire is for my friends that arrive on thursday until their cars get here from the states. I love travelling all over the place and now I have a friend coming in the kids can play together and we can shop and have fun. :)
Hi Tigger, I am sure you have sorted your friends out with a rental for their stay as this post is now 20 days old, but I thought I would put a note here about my car rental business for you (or anyone else for that matter)for future reference.
My company Breeze Auto Hire Ltd. can help you all as we provide excellent rates on a wide range of rental vehicles for weekly and monthly hire. We operate a fully secured online payment and order service so if you have friends or relatives coming over, an order can be placed while still overseas and a vehicle secured ready for the day they arrive.
Please take a look at our website www.breezeautohire.com or get in contact direct by giving me a call on 07799072786.
I hope I can assist with your rental requirements. Thanks Owen.
